SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - A Ukrainian woman has admitted to having a bogus marriage with a Binghamton man.

The Press and Sun-Bulletin of Binghamton reports (https://press.sn/1ViJdWc ) 29-year-old Natalia Polkowski pleaded guilty Thursday in Syracuse federal court to conspiracy to commit marriage fraud.

Prosecutors say Polkowski entered into a sham marriage with John Polkowski in December 2008 so she could obtain permanent residency in the country.

John Polkowski pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit marriage fraud in 2014 and has been sentenced to three years of probation. He admitted that he was promised $10,000 to marry a woman he had never met.

She faces up to five years in prison when she’s sentenced on July 21.
